I feel very privileged to have recently been featured on the Jo & Co blog. For those who have not yet heard of Jo & Co, it is a Cornwall-inspired lifestyle brand for your wardrobe and your home.
Based in North Cornwall, the Jo & Co store has been beautifully curated by friend and founder, Jo Eldridge. From the moment you enter the store your senses are tantalised and heightened! The scents of the aromatherapy candles, the soft hues of lighting, the stunning statement furniture pieces and not to mention all the wonderful selection of clothing and homeware products. If you are visiting Cornwall, I would highly recommend you stop by at Jo & Co’s!

Sarah-Jane, or ‘SJ’ as she’s known to her friends is a dynamo of creativity. Full-time mum, blogger, Instagrammer, property manager and events organiser to name but a few, and the creator of one of our favourite Instagram and blog accounts ‘Just A Little Build’ @justalittlebuild.
Documenting the journey from building site to dream home, along with splashes of family life, fashion and lifestyle inspo, we can’t get enough of this awe inspiring page. To add to the excitement, SJ’s second project, Leat House Cornwall @leathousecornwall is happening right on our doorstep, and we’ve loved getting to know SJ and her beautiful family throughout the creation of this Cornish coastal gem.
Creating a space that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing can be a tricky thing to do, but we think SJ has executed this beautifully. Striking that perfect balance between light and airy coastal style, whilst still retaining a cosy feel ready for those chilly winter evenings. The botanical touches keep things looking fresh, working in harmony with the warm neutral hues of the walls, blinds and carpet. All set off perfectly with the subtle use of pattern, adding a delicate level of interest.
The perfect balance of chic style and unrivalled comfort, The Amelie Sofa is available in velvet, cotton or linen in a wide variety of colours, and can be purchased in a four, three, two seater or snuggler size. It has deep seats perfect for curling up with a cup of tea, a good book, and letting your troubles melt away. Featuring a hardwood frame, deep button detailing on the back and arms, finished beautifully with polished, turned hardwood legs.
The Mylor Sofa is tailored and stylish. Inspired by the classic Chesterfield, the Mylor sofa sits low to the ground, and features deep button detailing and studded details on the arms. The Mylor has the perfect blend of traditional features, and is available as a two, three or four seater, in velvet, linen or leather, in a wide range of colours.

SJ sources her home accessories from all over, but if you want to create a similar look, here’s our top picks of complimentary items from the Jo & Co range.
Sarah-Jane’s signature style continues into the kitchen, with her characteristic balance of light and airy mixed with cosy style in abundance. The neutral tones keep things feeling fresh and clean, whilst the hints of metal and wood give a classic, country cottage feel. Practical yet homely, we particularly love how the traditional butler sink and large stone tiles blend the more contemporary pieces seamlessly into the room.
If you’re anything like us, Sarah-Jane’s home will have left you wanting to redesign every room in your house!
